A Note to Entitled Millennials in the Workplace: Give Humility a Try

A new “open letter” from a Millennial to managers shows the generation’s sense of entitlement.

Imagine for a moment that you’re a middle-level manager, mentoring and leading an ever-shifting kaleidoscope of young employees. Some stay. Some go.
